GENESEO, N.Y., May 30, 2023 — Livingston County has taken several significant steps in recent years to prioritize the mental health and well-being of its employees. Through a series of comprehensive mental health initiatives and employee appreciation efforts, the County has demonstrated a strong commitment to creating a supportive culture across its workforce.   

The County has implemented a range of programs and activities aimed at supporting employees’ emotional and mental health. These efforts include: 

  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP): This program is available to all County employees and helps individuals deal with a wide variety of issues, including: emotional problems, managing stress, marital or family conflict, substance abuse, compulsive gambling, legal issues, financial difficulties, grieving, job concerns, and other personal matters. The EAP program ensures employees have access to professional support whenever they need it.
  • Mindfulness Training: Benefits of mindfulness training include reducing stress and promoting well-being. The County supports employees taking advantage of fitness and mindfulness options in the community, such as Be Well in Livingston, part of the Genesee Valley Health Partnership.
  • Employee Appreciation Events: The County organizes regular cookouts and other events to show appreciation for its employees’ hard work and dedication. The events foster a sense of community and team cohesion among County staff.
  • SHAPE Program: The County’s Supporting Health Awareness Programs for Employees, or SHAPE, focuses on promoting and supporting the physical and mental well-being of each individual employee and their family. SHAPE is committed to empowering employees to make personal choices that promote optimal health and to also create a culture of total wellness in the workplace.
